What it really boils down to is shaping attitudes. Some of us can relate to these folks, which helps. I appreciate your putting this on the blog.

I removed the first posting of this letter because of a curse word I used at the end of my rant. The following is word for word what I had to say with a curse word replaced with something more acceptable by some.

But did you know in NC there is a new bill being introduced on behalf of the Army at Ft. Bragg?

give this a read, and tell me you agree with this type of legislation. I can't agree with it.

I am tired of the government telling me they are doing something "for my own good." It's just more government, bigger government...telling me I need to be protected from myself. Pisses me off. Natural selection of the species, ya can't fix stupid...and all that other stuff.
